The best tool to do it is watchmakers knife, but any proper knife with hardened steel blade can do the job. Make sure the blade is NOT flexible.
Check carefully the sides of your watch and you will notice the groove. Place knife blade into that groove and press it in. At the same time try to make a scooping turn to lift the caseback. Usually there must be underlayed caseback as well and it opens exactly in the same manner.
Make sure you do all this carefully and do not let the blade to slip or your watch will end up with nasty scratches or even damaged movement.
That job isn't a big deal, but requires some skill, so, BE CAREFULL.
Don't forget to rate, please.

How do I open the back of an Elgin Galaxie w1236 watch to change the battery


I'm holding one in y hand now. Let's see. There! On the back just above the i in Galaxie is a very small arrow that points to a grove on the side of the back plate. I can't open it with my finger nail. Let's try this very small flat tip screwdriver. Ah, got it. I hope this helps.

Change battery in Elgin watch FQ024-007


The back of this watch doesn't pry off, it screws off.
I used the open tip of a needle-nose pliers to unscrew the back of the watch by inserting the the tips into opposing grooves in the back of the watch and turning it counter-clockwise.

Once the back of the watch is off, there are a few slotted screws that appear to hold a metal cover over the back of the watch 'guts', you'll need a jeweler's screwdriver to remove these screws (I counted 3 of them).

The battery is right under this cover.

When re-assembling the watch, I would apply a thin coat of sewing machine oil, or some other non-reactive lubricant, to the black gasket seal which should be on the back cover of the watch.

Need to add links to a new Elgin watch band. The number on back of watch is SR626sw


That's the battery number for the watch also known as the #377. It's the most common watch battery in the world. Your model number is located at the bottom of the dial (face) below the six-o'clock position. You will need a 10 power jeweler's loupe or magnifying glass to see it and read it. Jot down the number and contact Elgin directly (MZ Berger Co,) for the extra links.

Helloi have an Elgin watch I am trying to sale I am not trying to get lowballed on the price..if you could help me out and tell me how much it is worth the info is b.w. Raymond Elgin 571 u-s-a V531181 8...


mcdevito75 here, Elgin, a fine, fine watch, If the name on the dial says Lady Elgin it could be worth more, but the fact it"s an Elgin counts alot also. Older Elgins are also worth more as they are collectables, Let"s say your Elgin is 20 years old and in fine . fine shape, no scratches, tarnishing and is keeping great time it"s worth could be $100.00 -- $150.00 Of course this depends on many factors as mentioned. If your Elgin is say only 5--10 years ols it"s value in my opinion is approx.$75.00 -- $100.00 Bset Bet, visit a few jewelers in your area, many will give a free apraisel on the value of your Elgin.

I JUST PURCHASED A NEW ELGIN LADIES WATCH ONLINE AND IT NOT WORKING. WHAT DO I DO?


If you are able to, send it back where you got it, most companuies have 30day return policies...if its been longer take it to a reputable jeweler or watchmaker and have the battery replaced...sometimes watches have been sitting in a warehouse for awhile before they are sold and the batteries have run down.

Need instruction manuel for elgin fg010-007 sports watch


The movement in this Elgin is made by Citizen. After you change the battery, you need to reset the hands so that the watch functions properly. Select chronograph function with lower-right button. Then pull-out the same button. Push the upper left button to select the UTC, hour, and minute hands. Then use lower-left and upper-right buttons to make sure everything is aligned to 12:00 position. After setting the hands to 12:00, push in lower right button. Now you can set the time by selecting the SET using the lower right button. Pull out the same button and choose your time zone to set.
